Getting used to
10 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

B.D. Wong was not even an SVU regular yet when he did this story as one of the guest cast. His character is an FBI profiler who gets teamed with Christopher Meloni as Meloni goes to interview a convicted sex offender serial killer Nick Chinlund about a new lead on an old case.

Of course later on when Wong becomes detached from the FBI and part of the team they work well. But now it becomes something of a contest as Meloni and Wong match expertise. Guess who wins?

But this features a pair of specimens who are clearly arguments for the death penalty. Nick Chinlund and a former cellmate Timothy Wheeler will terrify you. In fact Wheeler gets over on Stabler causing him no small amount of embarrassment.

Some people are pure evil and this episode demonstrates that. It also shows that Dr. George Huang and Detective Elliott Stabler will take a bit of getting used to.
